our mission

InDependent was founded in 2013 by Kimberly Bacso, Michele Bradfield, Leslie Brians, Joy Chalmers, and Meg Gotheridge; five military spouses who saw a need in the military community and sought to fill it. InDependent's mission is to connect military spouses to local health and wellness resources, as well as offer virtual and in-person programs in support of their wellness journey. We are fiscally sponsored by Public Health Foundation Enterprises, Inc., one of the nation’s leading 501(c)(3) non-profit fiscal sponsors, serving communities across the nation since 1968.
